Well, for USA Shooting, Will Brown (Twin Falls, Idaho) is deliv- ering renewed hope and energy to a pistol program anxious for a new star. Brown broke through in a


big way during the International Shooting Sports Federation (ISSF) World Cup USA in Ft. Ben- ning, Ga. in May after winning a gold medal in his signature event, Men’s 10m Air Pistol. For an encore at the following World Cup, he earned a trip to the Fi- nals of the Men’s 50m Free Pis- tol event in Munich, Germany. Sixteen days after shooting


a 544 in the Free Pistol event in Ft. Benning, Brown shot 16 points higher in Munich for a


world-class score of 560, to earn another trip to the fi nals in consecutive World Cup events. Brown fi nished seventh overall in his fi rst trip to a World Cup Final in what many believe to be the hardest Olympic shooting disci- pline.


Also, having a breakout per-
